SERVING KNOX AND SURROUNDING COUNTIES

In Tennessee, you have a legal obligation to provide for your child. If you are ordered to pay child support, payments must be made in full and on time. Failure to pay can result in your arrest, garnishment of wages or income tax refund, a lien on your property, your bank account being seized, your passport being denied, a negative credit report, and  revocation of your driver's license. If you receive child support, you deserve peace of mind that you will receive the support necessary to assist you in taking care of your child. 

HOW IS CHILD SUPPORT IS DETERMINED?

In Tennessee, there are set guidelines on how courts calculate child support payments. These guidelines are dependent on several factors, which include:

  • The income of both parents

  • How much time the child spends with each parent

  • How many children involved will receive support

The amount will also include how much it will cost to take care of the child's expenses such as clothing, health insurance, housing, and food. 

CAN I CHANGE MY CHILD SUPPORT?

Although limited, certain financial situations may arise that can allow you to change your child support amount. If you can show the amount you receive is inadequate, the amount you are paying is excessive, or an event in the child's life that would require more support (such as medical expenses), then you can petition to modify the amount. If you find yourself in this position, it is best to hire an attorney.
